    Shut off timer

    I am looking for a device where I can set my Nexus One to shut off at a certain time and hopefully turn back on again. I used this allot for my blackberry 9700 but since getting my Nexus One I have to admit I have not even picked up my blackberry. Is this app possible for the Android device? Looked in the market and all I find is stop watch timers.
    Thanks,
    Vinny

    Thanks for the look out. That is an app I thought should be built in every phone.
    Thanks again,
    Vinny

    Try "Sweet Dreams" It won't shut off your phone but it will disable notifications, alarms, ringer etc during certain hours.

    I can see an app that will shut off your phone at a specified time, but turning it back on seems like a whole other can of worms.

    As I understand it (which, admittedly, is not much), when the phone is "off" there is nothing running except a system clock (for time keeping only) and maybe some sort of hardware monitor that "watches" for power button activation.

    Since the OS would be inactive, no apps could be running, and if no apps are running no app could call a wake up.

    Now, I am NOT a developer or even a programmer so I could be WAY off base here. If I'm wrong, though, I welcome the correction

    My blackberry 9700 had that ability to shut off and turn on by a timer. I would shut it off routinely at 1:00am and turn back on at 5:am. Why not the Android system? I hope the developers can come up with one.
    Thanks,
    Vinny

    Sleepy Timer

    The reason you won't find any apps out there that do this, is due to the fact that Android OS disables the ability to power off the system without user interaction. Believe me I wanted the same thing as you all do.

    The next best thing is to disable all radios to conserve battery life.

    Check out Sleepy Timer - Pro Edition. It will power off Bluetooth, Network, and Wifi. It can also mute the phone (if you're listening to music before bed.)

    Don't forget to rate it.
